Ken Burns 'Country Music' documentary premieres on PBS stations this Sunday at 7pm. And this summer, we've been asking listeners to tell us about a country song that made a big impact on their life.

We received hundred of responses, detailing childhood memories, first kisses, songs that made them think, and how hearing the music of folks like Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson helped them do an about-turn on country music.

KOSU and The Spy are collaborating with The City of Guthrie, Hoboken Coffee Roasters, and The Visual Brain to bring you the Tiny Town Concert Series.

Every week, the Oklahoma Music Minute gives a run down of where you can see live music. There is so much great music being played in the state and we encourage you to get out and see some of these musicians live! Here are our picks for the week of August 5-9.

KOSU Radio will host three free screenings across the state of Ken Burns' new documentary Country Music, ahead of its September 15th premiere on PBS stations. This screening will provide an overview of the entire Country Music series, with a series of segments featuring stories about Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and more.

Every Tuesday, The Spy adds new music to its rotation. Here are the adds for the week of July 16, 2019. This week's playlist includes new songs by Chastity Belt, Bleached, Violent Femmes, Thom Yorke, and so many more.
